11330. Let Jacob To His Maker Sing

1 Let Jacob to his maker sing,
And praise his great redeeming king;
Called by a new, a gracious name,
Let Israel loud his God proclaim.

2 He knows our souls in all their fears,
And gently wipes our falling tears,
Forms trembling voices to a song,
And bids the feeble heart be strong.

3 Then let the rivers swell around,
And rising floods o’erflow the ground;
Rivers and floods and seas divide,
And homage pay to Israel’s guide.

4 Then let the fires their rage display,
And flaming terrors bar the way;
Unburnt, unsinged He leads them through,
And makes the flames refreshing, too.

5 The fires but on their bonds shall prey,
The floods but wash their stains away,
And grace divine new trophies raise
Amidst the deluge, and the blaze.
